We received a "Highly Recommended" from CM Magazine for Shepherd's Watch.
CM is short for Canadian Review of Materials, an all-volunteer online publication which features reviews of books and other materials for children and adolescents. Their reviewers are teachers, teacher-librarians, public librarians and university professors who have an interest and expertise in materials for juveniles.
Be warned for major spoilers for the full review in CM Magazine's website.
